Is anyone, like me, sick & tired of these b*llocks article titles?

All summer we have to sit and sift through this crap, but even though we know the articles with these sensational titles are complete tosh, we have to read them anyway. Just in case.

The silly season is in full swing with (according to certain sources) Cesc, Wenger, Reyes & Ashley Cole going to Real Madrid, Ashley Cole also going to Chelsea & Barcelona, Henry’s new contract all a big conspiracy just to get a better transfer fee for Arsenal & Campbell to Portsmouth (this one could be true).

Coming the other way we have Dirk Kuyt, Diarra, Fernando Torres, Saviola, Yaya Toure, Javier Mascherano, Buffon, Pele (the goal keeper not the impotent fellow) Carlos Salcido, Stephen Appiah, Frank Ribery……………

The list goes on and on.

But how can we not read this rubbish, I mean how many people didn’t bother reading articles about Sol Campbell’s signing for Arsenal because they thought it couldn’t be true? How many people dismissed articles about Man Utd’s signings of Alan Smith or Rio Ferdinand?

Not many I can tell you.

The truth is, in football, anything can happen, and as long as this is the case, cheap hacks will continue fabricate rumours like this in order to sell their newspapers & such like, and if, maybe, just maybe, any of these rumours come to pass, they can claim an exclusive and all the plaudits.

The fact that you’ve clicked this article link proves my theory.

God I hate the close season.
